The sign is being “replaced for obvious reasons.” Reasons being that they don’t need to draw extra attention to their candidate’s flaming racism with a sign that suggests (surely incorrectly) they are segregating people.
The Republican Party has so many possible ways their Trump convention can go wrong. They don’t need to assist with oopsie signs. A sign that reminds everyone of exactly what kind of America Donald Trump thinks is great.
